40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back Facebook Live Parts 1 & 2

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020 was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience booth was to exhibit a selection of items celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Conceptualized by our docents, Dan Norgan and Michelle Norgan, it would have taken you on a journey from concept to screen to collectible. Here is part 1 & part 2 of a Facebook Live showcasing many of the items that would have been on exhibit, plus others we would not have been able to bring. In addition, in part 1, take a tour through our bedroom exhibit that was installed at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017. In part 2, take a rare view of one of our back storage isles.

The ROW Experience: Tours in 2008

In 2008, still many years before the thought of forming a nonprofit museum, Steve was giving tours to school kids on a regular basis. It's always given Steve great joy to share the items from his collection. Seeing the emotion on people's faces or hearing their gasps as the door opens to the museum is life-affirming.
